I guess the Transformers Prime: Darkness Rising set that came out this week did pretty well, since Shout! Factory has just announced Transformers Prime: The Complete First Season.
The set will be available March 6, 2012, on either four DVDs or in a Limited Edition Blu-ray four-disc set. Both sets have 26 episodes (including the five Darkness Rising shows), but only the Blu-ray comes with a 96-page graphic novel from IDW, and only for a limited time. Preorders are now open; here’s the Amazon link for the DVD set (list price $29.93). The Blu-ray, linked to the right, has a list price of $64.99.
I know that the Transformers comics have been particularly successful, but I’m not sure they’re worth double the price, but I’m not the target audience. The Blu-ray will likely look amazing, since this is a computer-generated animated series, so the upgrade may be worth it just for the technical quality. The Transformers Prime series has won two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation.
